A small earthquake rattled a section of northeastern Salt Lake City late Tuesday but was not related to a series of tremors which shook central Utah earlier this month, University of Utah seismologists say.

The quake, measuring 2.1 magnitude on the Richter scale, occurred at 11:13 p.m. MDT, said Linda Hall of the U. of U. Seismograph Stations.The quake was felt by many residents but caused no injuries or damage, she said.

The temblor occurred along the Wasatch Fault, a series of unstable geological formations along the Wasatch Mountains running from northern to central Utah.

On Aug. 14, three quakes rolled through central Utah, the largest measuring 5.6 magnitude.
